Home is not a place... it's a feeling

I am your local Real Estate expert servicing buyers and sellers in Kent, Ottawa, Newaygo, Montcalm and Ionia Counties

Jim Connell loves to see the look on buyers’ faces when they’ve found “the one”. It’s that gratification and personal satisfaction that led him to real estate after a successful 15-year career in retail sales.

A “jack of all trades”, Jim is known for his straight-forward, no-hassle approach. His laid-back attitude puts clients at ease, but behind the scenes, he’s working hard to ensure buyers and sellers have a smooth and stress-free experience.

Jim is married to Cecilia, and they have two daughters, Fionna and Amelia. No matter what time of year, you can find him outside golfing in the spring and summer, hunting in the fall and snowmobiling in the winter. He’s a member of the Fraternal Order of Police, which provides a number of opportunities for him to give back to the community and support officers and their families if they’re hurt or killed on the job. He’s also a financial supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network.

Great communication, Jim always responds promptly. He knows the market very well and all the neighborhoods. Jim was available to promptly look at new listings and had the offer paperwork ready the same day. Overall an excellent experience.
